San Jose to Santa Cruz Commute

by ScullySquirrel

Hi everyone,
My boyfriend and I are likely going to be moving to CA to attend grad school. I will be going to San Jose State and he will be going to UC Santa Cruz. We were planning on living somewhere in between the 2 cities but it doesn't look like there's anything we'll be able to afford. Is the commute from San Jose to Santa Cruz as awful as people are saying it is? And if so, does anyone have any suggestions as far as affordable (as cheap as possible) places nearby to live? We would really appreciate any help!

The main road, CA 17, is just a 4-lane freeway for much of its length (south of CA 87, I believe) and gets pretty bad at rush hour. Both UC-Santa Cruz and SJSU also have horrendous parking situations, and I wouldn't want to drive into either campus.
If you move out to Campbell, which is about the last town in the San Jose area to the south (Los Gatos is further out, but a very expensive place to live), that should work for you both. It's not too expensive, on the VTA light rail line (which goes right to SJSU) and would probably work for getting to UC-Santa Cruz. It's a little suburban, but is still fairly interesting and isn't too far from San Jose.
There is a bus that goes betwen San Jose and Santa Cruz, but I don't how it would work for your situation.

San Jose's a cool town and, if it were me, I would definitely move there over Santa Cruz, although that's just my personal opinion of not being particularly fond of Santa Cruz. You should visit both cities a bit before making a decision on exactly where to live.

Thanks for the input! Very helpful =)

The commute from SJ to SC is at times "difficult." The road is fun to drive when empty, but too many people drive it too fast and there tend to be traffic problems as a result. There's no real alternative once committed so if there is an accident, you can sit for hours.

There are a couple of small communitities along the way but that would require commuting for any activities. You should check out the localities and the commutes before commiting to a place to live.

You don't say where you are coming from, and may have already thought of this, but I'll mention it anyway.

You might consider renting a "month-to-month" place when you first get out there, then take a weekend or two of reconnoitering the areas between the two schools to see if there is something more convenient and less expensive for your needs. This way you can give your thirty days notice and move to the ideal place for both of you.

Travel Tips for San Jose

Summer Concerts in San Jose Municipal Stadium

by Ewingjr98

In summer 2008 we saw country artists Jason Aldean and Emerson Drive at San Jose Municipal Stadium. Tickets were $15 for general admission and about $75 for the seating immediately in front of the stage.

This is a nice little venue for a concert. This historic stadium's beer stands, snack bars, and barbecue restaurant were open for concert goers. The stage was set up in center field against the outfield fence, and general admission spectators could sit in the grass or in the stands quite a ways away. The total crowd the night we went might have been 2,000 to 2,500 people and it was very easy to wander up next to the stage and get photos. There were a lot of families with children in attendance, and it was a good time.

Parking at the stadium costs $15, though there is a limited about of free on-street parking nearby.

Enjoy a Shark Attack!

by ATXtraveler

During my visit to the San Jose area last time, I got the chance to watch the San Jose Sharks take on the Calgary Flames. Its always interesting to watch hockey in non-traditional hockey territory, because so many people do not know the rules... but still enjoy the game. This is definitely the case at the HP Pavilion in San Jose.

The stadium is accessible by the light rail or taxi, unless of course you have a rental car... which will cost you a pretty penny in parking. The best bet is to take the free Sharks Shuttle bus from downtown.

Hike the Skyline-to-the-Sea Trail

by Anthro

The Skyline-to-the-Sea trail is a 34 mile hike through the Santa Cruz mountains. It starts in Castle Rock State Park, off HWY 35 and about 2 1/2 miles Southeast of HWY 9, goes through Big Basin State Park, and finally ends at the beach.

It was an absolutely beautiful hike twisting and turning through the redwood trees and the drier chapparel areas of the mountains. At some points I wanted to keel over and die, some times I wanted to quit, but I kept on going-especially when I saw Berry Creek Falls in Big Basin and the ocean peeking out around the bend of the mountain.

Give yourself at least 3 days to do it-unless you're an endurance hiker. Some stetches are up to 10 miles long. There are limited restrooms and showers along the way, except in Big Basin. You'll be by yourself most of the way between the parks, but that's the beauty of it. Crowds are usually in the main park areas and rarely go through the hard uphill trails. It is a great experience overall!

Bring plenty of water, food, tent, plenty of socks, first-aid kit, bug repellant, and a camera.

Be prepared for blisters, bug bites, hot weather, and long stretches of trail before the next campground.

Guaranteed to see hundreds of centuries-old redwoods, animals, beautiful waterfalls, cool streams, and gorgeous vista views.

Trendy Fashion and Furniture

by nomadig about Urban Outfitters

Urban Outfitters is an excellent place to buy both clothes and items for home, if you like their young and trendy style.

The ground floor has big selection of garments for women and the upper floor is dedicated to men clothing and furnishing. There is also a small selection of books upstairs.

The shop is especially strong in T-shirts that come in different colours and styles. Most of the shirts have some sort of graphic image or a punchline printed, so do not expect to find anything plain.

Flying into San Jose airport...

by Gary_Lefman

Flying into San Jose airport will be expensive because its a small time peice of tarmac next to the economic centre of the world (or that's what the Americans like to think), Your best bet is to land at San Francisco. The approach is beautiful, believe me.
Car! Everything in California is so spread out, this isn't quaint ole England were talking about here. For the town of San Jose there is a very effective light rail system that will go north to the large corporates, along Tasman Drive etc. The busses are good too.
